Subway's Jared visits Portland school

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

The star of Subway commercials, Jared Fogle, met with students at St. John Fisher Elementary in southwest Portland today.

St. Johns is one of the top fundraising schools in Oregon for the American Heart Association's Jump Rope for Heart program and the face of Subway was on hand to celebrate that accomplishment. The American Heart Association also puts on the annual Heart and Stroke Walk, which Fogle will be at tomorrow.

"My whole goal is they can learn through my mistakes and never have to weigh over 400 pounds like I did," said Fogle. "I'm going to share a little bit with them about my story today, but more importantly how they know me from TV as the Subway guy and hopefully turn it into something positive for them."

There is still time to sign up for the heart and stroke walk. We still even have room on our KPTV community team.
